Tennessee’s congressional delegation is pleading with House leaders to fund the proposed $182 million Nashville courthouse, even as gridlock over budget negotiations threatens to delay the project for at least another year. “Conditions have been deteriorating in federal courthouses for decades. Nowhere is this more apparent than Nashville, where we've reached a critical situation," the members argue in a letter to leaders, the Nashville Business Journal reports. Although the courthouse proposal has cleared major funding hurdles this year, if a budget agreement is not reached by Dec. 11, the project will be in jeopardy.
